Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States
By Charles O. Paullin
American Geographical Society, 1932, 145166 pp.

A notable and beautiful piece of work, overshadowing anything of the kind heretofore attempted. There are 166 plates and 145 pages of descriptive text, arranged under the following headings: The National Environment; Cartography; Indians; Explorations in the West and Southwest; Settlement, Population and Towns; States, Territories and Cities; Population; Colleges, Universities and Churches; Boundaries; Political Parties and Opinion; Industries and Transportation; Foreign Commerce; Distribution of Wealth; Plans of Cities; Military History; and Possessions and Territorial Claims. As may be seen, both economic and political aspects are given full treatment.
